Take a look at this site: http://www.w3.org/XML/Activity#schema-wg

I beleive XML Data was then updated (or reduced, whatever you like) to XDR
wich is now used by the MS parser.

XDR was there long before XML schema, so it is not a deviation but a first
try to develop something like the W3C is doing now. AFAIK MS will be
supporting XML schema fro W3C as soon as it becomes a recommendation (will
it ever reach that state? :-)) and will support users to update their XDR
files to XML schema from W3C.

Of course this is the way I see it. Others may have other opinions or facts.
I would be glad to hear them too...

Onderwerp: Different schemas....

I see that Microsoft has Msxml 2.0 with Schema support which I think I
understand correctly to be a slight deviation from the actual w3c proposal.
What does this mean to developers who want to do early implementations?
Of the few schemas I've seen... there are references to both w3c and
Microsoft datatypes in their schema attributes or sometimes references to
only MS data + datatypes and not w3c. Which is correct/common/good practise?
Does the MS datatype schema do something that the w3c's can't?
Are there other such deviations from the Schema proposal out there?
If so, what are they?
I'd appreciate any info that can enlighten me. I'm making the jump from
SGML/DTD's and it seems quite daunting.
